Machine Shops around the capital ditrict
« on: October 22, 2014, 02:31:13 PM »
Who's had experience with some machine shops locally that can recommend me one?  Nothing fancy, at minimum just a resurfacing, maybe a valve job if it's not too much.  I need to make a list now so I can find out who'll be open when I'm home in November.

Ah, the things I should remember...  Sounds good, I'll call them in a bit, I need to see if I can drop some stuff off near Thanksgiving.

Finally called them (named you too).  I'll probably have to ship the heads because of when I'm home and when they're there, but oh well.  Likely just a resurface, too, I don't think I can swing the extra for the 3-angle (as much as I want it).

If you need, you could drop the heads off to me and I can drop them off one day.

That's a nice offer, and I may need to take you up on that.  Xcelleration is only open on Wednesday, and I doubt I can get the heads, tear them down, and get them over there in one day.

Sorry for taking a little while, my dad's bring the heads to them tomorrow morning, he's only about 5 minutes away anyway.
